The second phase of the PSL began on June 9 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Quetta Gladiators registered a victory against Lahore Qalandars by 18 runs in Abu Dhabi.
Former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi got into a heated argument during the PSL match between Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators in Abu Dhabi. The umpires, along with Lahore captain Sohail Akhtar and senior batsman Mohammad Hafiz, had to separate them.
The Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 is being played in the UAE amid the Corona epidemic. The matches between Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators were played on Wednesday. During this match, two players of Pakistan were seen fighting among themselves.
The incident happened in the 19th over of Quetta's innings when Sarfaraz's helmet was hit by a bouncer from Afridi, which the umpire called a no-ball. The ball hit the helmet and went to the third man and Sarfaraz took the run. After reaching the other end, he said something to Afridi. Afridi got annoyed with him and he aggressively moved towards him with his run-up.

Seeing the tension rising, the umpire had to intervene. Hafeez and Akhtar also came running to him. Hafeez asked Sarfaraz to calm down and Afridi later said that this happens on the playground.
